Acupressure

Stiff, achy joints can be relieved with daily acupressure treatments. Acupressure improves blood circulation for rheumatic conditions. To soothe discomfort in the neck and lessen the general irritability that arthritis pain can cause, use your thumbs to press both GB 20 points. These points are situated below the base of the skull, two inches out from the middle of your neck. Press for one minute. Work on these points regularly, several times each day, in combination with other therapies. The GB 20 point is a good overall pain-relieving point and is one of the several anti-inflammatory points. (other points are given below.)

Acupressure Points

For elbow and wrist pain: 
LU 5, PC 3, HT 7, PC 7, LU 9, TW 10, LI 11, LI 5, TW 4

For ankle pain: 
SP 5, KI 3, ST 41, UB 60
